Sure, Disney may be doing very well for itself in the animation department these days, but they’ve also found an amazing amount of success on the live-action front…most recently in adapting their animated classics (which is actually pretty damn funny and ironic). Films like The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast have done well with both critics and audiences, but with this next adventure, we’re going to another classic: Dumbo.
However, unlike the other two, which were pretty faithful to their animated counterparts in terms of their human-to-animal ratios, Dumbo looks to be a big change. Based on what we’ve seen so far, most of the time will be spent on the human characters and their relationship to Dumbo, and I certainly hope that’ll help in making the film more accessible for general audiences. We’ll have a better look at the film tonight when the trailer hits, but ahead of that, we have a brand-new poster.
Below is the official synopsis for Dumbo:
“From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.”
